The Met Museum Remembers McQueen (12 pics)

Beginning May 4th, the Metropolitan Museum in New York will commemorate the remarkable fashion career of Alexander McQueen with the exhibition Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty. It will highlight his significant contribution to the world of fashion from his postgraduate collection in 1992 to his final runway presentation after his death in February 2010. 100 pieces of work will be displayed.

To allow the pieces to move, McQueen's clothes were photographed for the exhibition by Sølve Sundsbø on live models which were then digitally altered to look like mannequins.

The curator of this event, Andrew Bolton shares his thoughts on the late McQueen. “Alexander McQueen was best known for his astonishing and extravagant runway presentations, which were given dramatic scenarios and narrative structures that suggested avant-garde installation and performance art. His fashions were an outlet for his emotions an expression of the deepest, often darkest, aspects of his imagination. He was a true romantic in the Byronic sense of the word — he channeled the sublime.”

The show will run from May 4th till July 31,2011.
